Learn what life was like at the time as you tour the home and hear the harrowing story of the Shriver family’s experiences during the battle from a costumed guide. After the tour we will check into the Courtyard by Marriott. Dinner will be presented from The South. After the Battle of Gettysburg on July 4, 1863, General Robert E. Lee and his soldiers stopped to dine here. During dinner, “General & Mrs. Lee” will entertain you with stories from the 19th century and the Civil War.

During lunch we will visit with and enjoy stories by “Mamie Eisenhower” as she recalls her first meeting with Ike, the trials and tribulations of marriage, war, politics, the presidency and their life together in Gettysburg. After lunch we will visit the Hollabaugh Brothers Fruit, Farm and Market. A covered wagon ride along with an apple treat will be enjoyed.
